Re: Camera [FOUND] Below Three Sisters after 10 years

I once found a camera in 2015 in the Superstitions that was lost in 2010 and was able to recover the SD card. There were only a few photos on it, all showing the scenery where it was lost. However I used software found on the WEB to recover erased photos and from those recovered photos, with help fr...

Re: 10th Annual New Year's Day Peak Bag

@tibber
Looks like I won't have time to do all of the extra hike you were considering - maybe just the 1.6 mi hike up to the Horns of Dilemma and back. Following the part of Bruce and Joe's track up and down 2 creek beds can be slow going.

Re: VV Trail Sign

My thought is that these signs may have been related to logging and marked areas leased/sold by the Forest Service for logging.

Re: Annoying Garmin problem

@Hansenaz I did have a problem with gps files that I had filtered with the non-Garmin software but switching from Mapsource to Basecamp fixed that problem. I keep all my gps tracks saved on my pc in folders bearing the name of the area. When I return to an area I just go through the files in that f...

Re: Annoying Garmin problem

I've had a problem with gps tracks not showing up on my Garmin Oregon 450 and also not on the old predecessor to Garmin BaseCamp, I think it was called MapSource. I had used a non-Garmin program called "GPS Track Editor" to "filter local inconsistencies" on those problem tracks. It essentially remov...

Re: Snake Gaiters -worth it?

I often wear snake gaiters for off-trail hiking. These are the ones I use: https://www.amazon.com/d/Shoe-Gaiters/TurtleSkin-TurtleSkin%C2%AE-SnakeArmor-Snake-Gaiters/B00ITZDL90?tag=hikearizona They're expensive, don't breath, and require some ingenuity to attach. But they're light weight and flexibl...

Re: True Confessions of HAZ

When I first started hiking in AZ and before I had found the HAZ website I actually believed that the trails described in AZ hiking books published 5 years earlier still existed. As a result on my first backpacking trip I spent a cold wet day in Feb 2010 wading up Deer Creek "Trail" #45 in the Mazat...

Re: True Confessions of HAZ

@skatchkins
So when did you first start hiking in AZ? The timing might explain several incidences of hikers returning to the trailhead to find their cars were missing and then finding them at another trailhead.

Re: Pueblo Cyn Ruins (Recent Landslide Restricts Hike Access?)

do we have any reason to believe that the person he talked to was making it up? The guy was riding an ATV, said he and his wife had 1.5 hours of available time to hike when they came to the "landslide". He was unclear about whether or not they were even on the correct trail but had reached a locati...

Re: Cherry Creek Rd FR 203

Regarding the boulder blocking FR203 just north of Devil's Chasm. I talked to a guy driving a blue 4x4 Tacoma down FR203 on April 11, 2017, who had just been up to Pueblo Canyon. He was able to drive around the boulder to get to the Pueblo Cny Ruins TH. His Taco looked stock and he didn't seem the t...

Re: Toyota Motor Mount, Frame Failure Warning

@RedRoxx44 My vehicle has 166K on it and it has seen some pretty demanding driving. OK, that will do it. Twice the mileage and most likely a much higher percentage of that has been on rough terrain compared to my FJ. Also, I've driven on a few of the "pretty demanding driving" places you've been an...

@Grasshopper I think I might have used low range 1st gear. Once. :) :lol: I've had the honor of experiencing your back road driving skills a couple of times.

Re: Toyota Motor Mount, Frame Failure Warning

Just checked the motor mounts on my 2008 FJ, manual transmission model, stock skid pan, no added weight like winch, or heavy duty bumpers. It only has about 85K miles on it. Mounts and frame around mount welds look good as new. :) But I take it really easy on rough terrain, try to avoid hard bottomi...

What a pain. I will check mine latet today as soon as I finish Grandpa duty. I'm wondering if I can see the area of the frame that cracks without moving stuff out of the way.

Re: leg gaiters

When the gaiter type with straps wear through and break it's a bigger problem to replace in the field.. just not easy to replace/fix. So, if one is planning on buying & wearing gaiters on a longer or an AZT through hike, I would recommend buying the cord type gaiters and one will also need extra cu...
